There are 300.000 homeless people in Germany, many of them street musicians. Their problem: today passers-by are more concerned with themselves or their online devices and donate less and less money.

To give street musicians their audience back we took them to a place beggars usually have no access to: the internet. Instead of playing in front of shops we let them play in front of online shops – as interactive banners. With one click people could donate money to the German Red Cross and post or tweet about it.
